Los Angeles: 21 Years of Peacefully Standing Up to the Chinese Regime and Protesting Against Persecution of Faith
On Sunday, July 12, 2020, practitioners in Los Angeles held an information event at Santa Monica Pier to tell people about the benefits of practicing Falun Gong and how it's persecuted in China. They hope to put an end to the persecution by raising awareness of the atrocities carried out against the spiritual practice.
Over 200 practitioners gathered in Chiayi City to raise awareness of the persecution of Falun Dafa in China. They held group exercises, distributed informational materials, and held a candlelight vigil to commemorate the thousands who have died in the persecution. Many shared their positive experiences of practicing Falun Dafa, from health improvement to mental and spiritual wellbeing.
